The Parent’s Association at Spratton Hall School has raised £6,350 for The Faraway Children’s Charity.
Jane Deamer, Founder and Chair of the Faraway Children’s Charity was invited to the school to collect the cheque. This was presented by Deputy Head Master, Mr Dow, and Head Boy and Girl, Milo and Clemmie.
Parents raised the money by hosting a series of events including a Spring Party, a Murder Mystery Evening, Quiz Night, Christmas Fayre and a Movie Night.
The £6,350 will go towards the Charity’s big Christmas campaign, which allows for their partner organisations to buy presents, clothing and food for families.
Jane also noted the severity of the current cost of living crisis and said ‘it is the toughest we have ever known it to be.’
